Pink hair is having a moment; celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West have tried the trend this year, and today we're looking at the evolution of pink hair from the '90s to now! The pink hair craze isn't just a millennial sensation, it started with stars like Drew Barrymore back in the '90s, then in the early 2000s we got stars like Avril Lavigne and Christina Aguilera who were thinking pink, and today we've got Paris Jackson with peachy-pink hair and Bella Thorne with a pink-red Coachella-hair-hue too. What started as a tribute to Barbie pink and all things '90s and neon has shifted over the years to rainbow-unicorn-pastel pink, to rose gold, then blushed copper, and now even peach toned pink hair. You know what they say about fashion? Looks tend to come back around, and some stars have been sporting the '90s pink hue as of late. The cycle of pink hair seems to have come full circle and we're kind of obsessed with it.
Have you ever thought about dyeing your hair pink?! You're not alone. If you're looking for a little inspiration or for a little '90s nostalgia, read on to discover the evolution of pink hair from the '90s to now!
26 Drew Barrymore - Riding In Cars With Bubblegum Pink Hair
Our pink hair journey starts with Drew Barrymore, who rocked this pink sherbet look in the '90s. She could fit into any modern day music festival with this look. Those daisies are giving us some serious Coachella feels and we love it. Drew has been a style icon for literally decades and we're loving her pink moment and hoping it will have a 2018 revival. Apparently, she and her daughters have similar fashion senses. She shared a photo of her daughter with a similar pink look on Instagram and captioned it, "Sunday in the park with Olive. She's 5 going on 13. She looks like a '90s grunge girl. And has the attitude to go with it." According to In Style, Drew's younger daughter Frankie has also tried the dye! In Style said, "Beyond Sweet. Barrymore also shared a photo of her 3-year-old daughter Frankie, who also seemed to be rocking some dyed locks." Frankie opted for a lighter blue-green-gray hue. We're just wondering how two daughters got dye in their hair and they didn't convince their mom to try it too! We love this picture of Drew, and can't wait to see her next dye job, on her, or her girls!
25 P!nk - Get The Neon Pink Hair Started On A Saturday Night
When you think of pink hair, you obviously think of Pink, not only is it her namesake, but a hairstyle that she has rocked on and off since becoming a pop star in the very early 2000s. Here, we have that quintessential Barbie, neon pink look, but she's tried them all, from dusty rose to hot neon pink, there's not a bottle of pink dye Pink hasn't tried. Like Drew, Pink's daughter is following in her footsteps too. According to In Style, Pink's daughter Willow has tried pink too. Pink's always had the self-confidence to rock whatever look she wants and she used that life lesson when she gave her acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award at the VMA's. According to Hollywood Reporter, Pink said this to the crowd, "When people make fun of me, that's what they use. They say I look like a boy or I'm too masculine or I have too many opinions or my body is too strong. And I said, do you see me growing my hair? 'No Mama.' Do you see me changing my body? 'No, Mama.' Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?" The speech was directed at daughter Willow, who had recently struggled with bullying. Now Willow and mom have the confidence to rock pink hair together.
24 Gwen Stefani - Used To Love Pink Barbie Hair
There is no doubt that Gwen Stefani has undergone a Cinderella story transformation as her looks have evolved over the years. She has become a fashion icon, and we know she probably thinks her pink hair moment was cringe, but it was an important moment in the evolution of pink hair. Here, we have full on flamingo pink, with nails to match. Gwen rocked an all over pink look, which differs from modern day, as stars tend to either go with ombre or balayage these days. According to Female First, Gwen Stefani dyed her hair because she was going through a tough time. She said, "The pink hair really reflected my needs at that time. When I look back at pictures now I'm like, 'Wow, you were searching!' I was turning 30 and didn't know who I was." Images of Gwen with pink hair resurfaced when Miranda Lambert dyed her hair pink and Twitter compared the two looks. Gwen obviously dates Miranda's ex, Blake Shelton and the two are incredibly happy together. We don't think there is any need for comparison, the more pink hair the better! Gwen is back to sporting her platinum blonde hair, but we're wondering if a throwback Thursday might call for a little color one of these days!
23 Christina Aguilera - What A Girl Wants, What A Girl Needs, Red To Pink
Christina Aguilera is a hair chameleon. She's been blonde, brunette, and red and her hair always looks kind of natural, well, obviously excluding this look. In the early 2000s Christina went for a striped look with dramatic highlights, and although this could be considered red, we're calling it wine, and thank goodness Christina only got finer with time! Christina started on the scene as a blonde pop princess and over the years tried to strip her image and tried much more grungy looks. Thankfully, Christina plays more with pastel pinks these days and actually encourages her daughter to do the same. According to Business Insider, Christina said this about the idea of beauty, "There's always gonna be those trolls out there or people that have their own definition and ideals of beauty, but I think we're progressing to a place of pushback and more people coming out." As for her daughter, Christina said, "I just hope I can allow what I'm doing to influence her to be her own person. That's truly what I hope for her." We're just hoping Christina and her daughter does a matching pastel pink one of these days. The singer is back to blonde but occasionally goes back to her vivid days.
22 Avril Lavigne - He Was A Punk, She Had Ballet Pink Hair
Avril Lavigne really marked the shift from all over pink hair, to a single pink highlight or statement piece of color in the Hollywood evolution of pink hair. Avril Lavigne is known for pop-punk hair and we're loving this simple, sweet pink moment, it's very ballet pink and of course, it's giving us some "Sk8er Boi" vibes. Avril's tried every color, from pink, purple, green, blue, and black. According to Skinny Versus Curvy, the singer said this about her evolving fashion trends, "When I was a teenager, I had stick-straight hair, black eyes, Dickies, vintage T-shirts. For my second album, I started wearing bondage pants, shopping at Gothic stores, black streak in my hair. For me, that was growth. For my record The Best Damn Thing, I put pink in my hair and wore heels and dresses." Avril resurfaced in 2018 to announce to the world that she's going to be putting out a new album after her struggles with Lyme Disease. According to People, Avril says, "I have my life back, which is amazing. It's something I continue to work at every day." The star returns after a two-year hiatus and we're wondering what color streak she'll put in her hair with this new album!
21 Rachel McAdams - On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink Hair
It's only fitting that Mean Girls star, Rachel McAdams, otherwise known as Regina George has tried pink hair. One of the most quotable lines in recent movie history alludes to her color change, "On Wednesdays we wear pink." What made the star want to wear pink every day, and not just on Wednesdays? According to Glamour, Rachel said this about her pink look, "I always wanted pink hair. I wanted to do my whole head, but my hairstylist, Robert, was like, 'How about we start small?' I absolutely loved it. I still think about doing blue at some point, but I don't like to change my hair before I'm about to do [a film.] - you never know what that character's going to be." McAdams has been known to try blonde, red, and brown hairstyles, and no matter what style she tries it always looks like her natural hair color, even this pink color seems to suit the star. Rachel recently gave birth to a new baby; however, she's seeing blue with a new baby boy, instead of pink, according to Us Weekly. This is Rachel's first child. We're hoping motherhood makes her want to have a little fun with her hair again, and we're inspired by that Mean Girls "Burn Book" pink!
20 Kelly Osbourne - Fashion Police Star, Siren Light Hair
Okay, so this one is technically a pink-purple color, but Kelly has done full-on pink recently and in the past, so we think it’s only fair to include her on our list of the evolution of pink hair! Kelly has been known to rock this mauve colored hair, which definitely has some pink tones to it. We love this color, but the most interesting thing about Kelly's hair is the fact that it was a contractual obligation. According to Huffington Post, Kelly told fans, “I’m contracted to this hair color…I can’t change it for two years. I wanted to go green, but was told I wouldn’t be able to work anymore.” Apparently, her work on Fashion Police meant adhering to whatever color hair they wanted! Kelly’s hair is unique and beautiful and a staple to her overall look, but we can’t imagine signing a contract about dying our hair! Kelly has also said this about her famous color, “In England, I’m called queen of the granny girls and I love it! My hair is a mix of gray, blue, [and] lavender. It’s hard to get this color; you have to have blonde hair to get the right shade.” We don't think Kelly is a granny, but we love her gray inspired look.
19 Katy Perry - Taste Of Cherry Chapstick, Cherry Blossom Hair
The next stop on our evolution of pink hair is this lovely look by Katy Perry; Katy appears on our list multiple times, as she has rocked a lot of different pink hairstyles over the years! Katy Perry rocked this pink hair look in 2011 at the MTV Video Music Awards. MTV had this to say about Katy's fashion-forward look, "We just KNEW if there was one person whose outfit was guaranteed to shock us and send us into a head-360-spinning, eye-buggin' outfit at this year's Video Music Awards it would absolutely be the one Miss Katy Perry. And let us tell you, girl surely did not disappoint. Katy arrived shimmying down the red carpet in a full-on Asian-inspired ensemble of epic proportions. Rocking a floral-embellished [be-sequined] light blue mini (and we're talking MINI) with strappy neon coral heels, decorative flowers pinned to her newly pink hair." In this pink hair moment, Katy Perry did rock that Hollywood glam, Marilyn Monroe wave look, and we love it. This was the year of Teenage Dream and we all remember Katy Perry laying on that pink cloud album cover, and we're wondering if that was the inspiration for the pink hair too.
18 Katy Perry - Waking Up In Vegas, Sunrise Ombre Pink Hair
We told you Katy Perry shows up on our list a few times; this girl is brave! We are obsessed with this look; Katy Perry, in this pink-haired moment, went for what we're calling a sunrise ombre pink; there are tones of pink, peach, and orange in here. Perry was way ahead of the times with this one, peach hair only recently has become very popular. According to Teen Vogue, this sherbet color is actually called "blorange." Teen Vogue said this about the new trend, "Supposedly, 'blorange' refers to blood orange, a citrus fruit that combines shades of orange, ruby, and crimson. Personally, we think the examples we've seen remind us more of blonde-orange - think about a warmer, more colorful take on rose gold hair. The term seems pretty flexible; 'blorange' covers a wide range of shades from orange to peach to pastel pink. Katy Perry tried the most orange iteration of the trend recently, proving that blorange is officially on the rise. The main idea is that the citrus-inspired hue brings a perfect touch of brightness and warmth to your complexion." Whatever you want to call it, we're obsessed with Perry's blorange, pink sherbet, tequila sunrise hair and we totally agree that it's warming up her complexion, especially with this matching gold, pink, peach makeup look.
17 Rihanna - Shine Bright Like Gemstone Pink Hair
Rihanna has also gotten in on the pink hair craze, with this sweet pink pixie. This is the most cotton-candy pink we've seen in our evolution so far and we love how bold Rihanna is with her fashion choices! So far, we've seen neons, we've seen highlights with Barbie pink, mauves, cherry blossom pink, sunrise pink, and now we've got this cotton-candy-carnival color too! According to Huffington Post, "Apparently Riri's new look was inspired by rapper-turned-actress Nicki Minaj, as she wrote: 'We raided Nicki's wig closet for the summer! Bad gals just wanna have fun!'" Spoiler alert! Nicki is on our list too! We love this bubblegum look. Huffington Post also said, "The 26-year-old also showed off her new pink wig at the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder NBA playoff game. You couldn't miss the court-side cutie with her vibrant new hair piece and braless white tank top-and-blue-jeans outfit - quite the distraction, right?" We agree! Rihanna knows how to attract a crowd and we had to include her in the evolution of pink hair! We're wondering if this pink look helped inspire her Fenty Beauty lineup and the nude pink packaging too! Either way, Rihanna is a vision in pink!
16 Demi Lovato - Pink For The Summer, Dip Dyed Pink Ends
Demi Lovato has tried pretty much every hair look imaginable, from long to short, from blue to pink and there’s nothing simply complicated about her beauty and versatility when it comes to her fashion choices. Look no further than Demi's Instagram to know she's a fashion style icon. Today, we’re looking at her Christina Aguilera-esque dip dyed, striped pink ponytail, and we're loving her reference to 2000's pop locks. Refinery 29 put it best, “When Demi Lovato dyed her hair blue, it didn’t really register with us as a major makeover. Not because blue hair isn’t a big deal, but because it just looked so quintessentially her that it took us a minute to realize it was actually new. However, now that she’s switched to an ultra-vibrant hot pink, you can be sure that we’ve noticed.” Demi’s pink hair suits her; the only thing we’re feeling a little too '90s about is that pink band of hair around her ponytail! We especially love that she's paired her pale neon pink hair with a peachy-pink lip and a fresh-faced makeup look. Demi has been keeping her hair more natural as of late, but we're wondering if festival season will make her go vivid again!
15 Lauren Conrad - Laguna Sunset, Cotton Candy Sky Pink Ombre
Lauren Conrad will be forever known as the girl that didn't go to Paris at least to The Hills fans, but she actually did go to Paris and we think maybe that's what inspired this Parisian pink pale macaroon-esque hair look. We're loving this look. Lauren's two-tone pink ombre is gorgeous and we love the hot pink lip to match. Lauren is Pinterest hair goals, there's no question about that, but this pink color takes it to a whole new level. According to Us Weekly, the first time Conrad sported pink hair was actually a total accident. The magazine reports, "Lauren went to see the Holi Festival, which is a celebration of the start of spring and color on the full moon. Everyone throws pigment powder around in the air. Once you get covered, if you're blonde, it's stuck in your hair for weeks to months." Obviously, Lauren's accidental run-in with a bit of color made her want to experiment with more pink looks. These days, Lauren is busy at work with brands Paper Crown and The Little Market. In terms of hair, she is sporting a shorter, blonder look, but we're hoping that she goes back to pink in the future, because she looks so gorgeous with this hairstyle.
14 Julianne Hough - Dancing With Pink Flower Hair
Julianne Hough also tried pink hair recently. Like Lauren Conrad, she went for a pastel look. Pink pastels seem to be the trend as we move forward in the evolution of pink hair! Julianne posted about her hair transformation on her website, she said, "I love to experiment with my looks by way of beauty products, styling tools and sometimes even taking things a step further - remember last year when I chopped off all my hair? It was a big, bold move but it was so worth it! It felt liberating not to hide behind all that hair. So why did I decide on the color pink this time? Because pink is the color of kindness!" This pinky hue is definitely kind to this Dancing with the Stars star. Hough looks pretty in pink and she's right; she's undergone a true hair transformation over the past few years, from long to short, blonde to pink, and then back again. Julianne made headlines recently as she went from blonde beauty to a fiery redhead! One thing is for sure, this is an important stop on our evolution of pink hair, these pretty rainbow pastel hues sure do come up again.
13 Nicole Richie - Great News For Pink Hair, Neon Makes A Comeback
Nicole Richie has come a long way since her The Simple Life days. From wearing pink everything to having pink hair, the star has totally evolved. Nicole is known now for her role in Great News, which even famous frenemy Paris Hilton has admitted she loves, captioning an Instagram photo about it! Today, we’re looking at Nicole’s pink hair! We’re loving this light neon-magenta hue, and it’s giving us some serious throwback vibes to Gwen Stefani’s all over pink, this is just a little more modern and, apparently, it was kind of a surprise! According to People, Nicole said this about the look, “It all came about very spur of the moment…I was at home one day, we had the music going, and it just kind of happened. It was on a random Tuesday.” Nicole said her daughter is used to crazy hair colors, between her and husband, Joel Madden, there's always something bright to look at. She said this, "She loves it! Her dad has been wearing colored hair since she was born, so it's something she - both of my kids - embrace it. They love it, their friends like it, so it's fun." We agree! Pink hair is fun.
12 Tyra Banks - America's Next Top Pink Hair
Tyra Banks is famous for her role on America's Next Top Model, and this look is definitely runway ready. Although Tyra always wanted her models to look more natural, Tyra opted for a toned down Barbie dark pink ombre for her birthday, ironic considering she basically played Barbie in the movie Life-Size back in 2000. Maybe her pink dress from the movie was the inspiration behind her pink hair. According to Essence, "The color is technically Champagne Rose, and is courtesy of stylist Kiyah Wright." Tyra took to her Instagram and captioned a playful photo with her new pink hair, "It's MY birthday and I want birthday colored hair NOW." Wish and you shall receive, Tyra only rocked the pink look for a few days in 2015, but we're wishing it would make a comeback! A year later Tyra reposted a pink photo, and asked us to remember when pink hair was a thing...it still is a thing! Tyra Banks made news this week when she announced that Lindsay Lohan would be joining her in Life-Size 2, who knew there was going to be a Life-Size 2? Anyway, it's making all of our early 2000s hearts weak, can you imagine Tyra and Lindsay both with pink hair!?
11 Kaley Cuoco - Pink Hair And Eyebrows Make A Big Bang
Kaley Cuoco is famous for her work on The Big Bang Theory and she certainly made a big bang when she debuted her pink hair and eyebrows, it’s giving us some throwback early 2000 feels, and we’re not sure how to feel about it. Honestly, the pink hair is great, but it’s life’s great question to dye or not dye one’s eyebrows upon an excursion with unicorn hair. Good news people, this was just for a photo shoot, although she did keep the pink hair for a while after, who wouldn't? According to Glamour, Kaley “collaborated with Hollywood’s hair dream team, including Vanessa Spaeth at the Andy Lecompte salon, who created the color, longtime stylist Christine Symonds, and Jen Atkin, founder of Mane Addicts.” With so many big names in hair, obviously, she got a beautiful pink. This look has definitely got the sunrise, sherbet pink tone to it, which seems to be coming back in 2018. The photoshoot that they prepared for was all pink, with makeup to match. We love the pink hair trend, but we’re thinking that natural eyebrows are a little more flattering! Kaley has since gone back to her beautiful blonde locks, but we're thinking we'd love to see a more subtle transition to pink in the future!
10 Hilary Duff - From Lizzie McGuire To Grungy Pink
We all know Hilary Duff as Lizzie, from the Lizzie McGuire series, but she’s moved on since then and come into a style and career of her own. Hilary Duff now stars in Younger, but we're going back to when we were younger. Do you guys remember the cartoon version of Lizzie and her famous pink shirt? Well, now we've gone to pink hair! We’re loving this grungy worn in pink look, as well as her stack of earrings to match! Hilary looks edgy, while also put together and we're obsessed. According to In Style, Duff was inspired by the unicorn hair trend on social media. Duff said this about her mauve-inspired shade of worn in pink, “I always go Instagram, and this time, I just typed in ‘light pink hair.’ I saw a bunch of stuff and thought, let’s do this. When I’m not working, dyeing my hair is a fun thing for me to do.” Over the years Duff has been blonde, but even tried blues and greens too! We’re loving how much fun Duff is having while playing with her hair color, but honestly, we're still wishing she’d get with Gordo after all these years. Please, Lizzie, make our early 2000s dreams come true!
9 Kylie Jenner - Rose Gold Hair And Makeup
We don't want to say that Apple's iPhone played a huge role in the evolution of pink hair, but they definitely helped make rose gold a thing, like an actual phenomenon. In the past few years rose gold has taken the world by storm. Here, Kylie is rocking the loveliest rose gold hue. According to E! News, Priscilla Valles, extensions specialist, said the color is technically called "Rose Quartz," but we're sticking with the rose gold thing. She also added that "[Kylie] can pull off any color! She's like a unicorn!" We couldn't agree more. Kylie is one of the stars that show up on our list more than once because she really is that versatile; she's single-handedly had a pink hair evolution all her own. She's rocked every color, from pink to blue. Look no further than Kylie's Instagram to see her personal hair evolution. Kylie captioned this look on the 'gram with a simple caption, "Rosé" with a pink emoji bow. We love that Kylie has paired her pink hair with a subtle pink makeup look too; she looks so natural, and her brown eyes really do pop with the pastel pink! Hard to believe anyone could look so naturally beautiful with rose gold hair!
8 Lady Gaga - From Million Reasons' Pink Hat To Pink Hair
Lady Gaga is known for making bold fashion choices, from meat dresses to insane wigs and shoes, but she also decided to dip her toes into the Hollywood sea of pink hair. We love Gaga's pinky peachy locks and the Bridget Bardot-esque feel of the styling of this picture. According to Bustle, "The singer posted a photo of a peached-out ponytail on Instagram. One look at her selfie, and you'll be in love with the idea of sherbet strands for summer because this shade is just too pretty. Experimenting with hairstyles definitely isn't new to Gaga. She's tried blonde, brunette, and even light pink in the past." Gaga has tried pink hair and peachy pink hair and we know she can pull off any look, from styled locks to piece-y ponytails. Today, Gaga is back to wearing her hair blonde, but we're wishing that the summer sun will make her want to go pink again, or at least some variation of sherbet or raspberry sorbet, as it oddly suits her. Lady Gaga has toned down the insane costumes over the years, but hair is a great way to experiment with a look, without going overboard; that's why we love the idea of vivid hair on her.
7 Gigi Hadid - May The Force Be With Pink Hair
Famous model Gigi Hadid took to Instagram last year to show off her new pink hair look, but, sadly, it was only temporary. Hadid opted for blonde roots, with dip-dyed purple pink ends. Hadid only sported the look for a quick Maybelline photo shoot and then was back to her normal blonde. According to People, “The model’s been almost every shade of blonde, brunette, and bronde imaginable, but for this photo shoot, she ventured out of her comfort zone and added some colorful pink highlights to her long, My Little Pony-esque ponytail.” It definitely is giving off that 80’s My Little Pony vibe and we’re obsessed with it. Hadid looks pretty in pink, but let’s be honest, Hadid looks pretty all the time! We’re loving that this is a bolder version of Demi Lovato’s look from above! Dip-dyed ends and a long ponytail? From Christina to Demi to Gigi, fashion really does come back around, and so does pink hair, in all of its forms! Gigi is back to her long blonde look, and we're wondering if summer sun will make her do something more fun again. We're hoping for some Coachella inspired hues for this supermodel!
6 Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday? Pink Everyday
We told you Nicki Minaj would be showing up our list! How could we not include the star with the album aptly named, Pink Friday? Well, now Nicki is a pink lady too! Nicki Minaj is perhaps one of the stars most well known for her pink looks, as she has tried lots of them. We love this take on the pink hair trend; of course, Nicki had done full-on pink before, but this is definitely different from anything else on our list with the half blonde, half pink look, it's feeling very Cruella de Vil meets Barbie. According to Mashable, Nicki Minaj said this about her pink hair when asked about being creative, "I think it was the whole era of being obsessed with pink and just wearing pink hair. Whether I was wearing a pink wig or just pink streaks in my hair, it became so synonymous with me that a lot of people gave me endorsement deals, so I think that actually helped me a lot in the long run." We agree with Nicki, this look is just so her. We're wishing we could have this pink hair moment for life, do like Nicki with your hair this summer and "make 'em like Barbie."
5 Kim Kardashian West - Dusty Pink Reminds Us Of KKW Packaging
If there's a trend taking Instagram by storm, you already now that Kim Kardashian West is going to try it, and of course pink hair is no exception. Back in February Kim decided to try the trend, and no it wasn't just for Valentine's Day! According to People Kim said this about her cotton candy pink strands, "I thought about it for a month and then decided to just go for it. Since my hair is blonde right now, it was easy to put the pink color over it. I figured it was the perfect timing. North absolutely loves it. She was so excited when she woke up to see I had pink hair. Kanye loves it, too." We love it too! Kim's baby pink hair is definitely the fully evolved of all of the pink hair trends. Her hair looks barely touched by pink in the photo above and is definitely a dusty pastel pale rose color. According to People, Kim's pink hair was also perfect for her husband, Kanye West's, ad campaign for his new Yeezy lineup. We're just waiting for a few more Kardashians to try the pink trend, with so many girls born this year, it only seems fitting for grandma Kris to try pink next!
4 Paris Jackson - Daughter Of The Prince Of Pop Or Princess Peach?
Paris Jackson made waves earlier this month when she changed up her look. Jackson, daughter of the prince of pop, seems to have taken inspiration from princess peach with her new look. The young star debuted her look on Instagram, captioning the post, "feelin peachy." We're feeling pretty peachy about this new pink hair trend too! Paris is a boho babe, meets street chic and we love this worn-in look. Paris did what a lot of stars do when dyeing hair pink, which is to leave her natural roots exposed so the look requires less maintenance and doesn't look as severe as it grows. This is the 2018 version of 2017's full-on rose gold moment and definitely the final step in the evolution of pink hair, from here on out, it's pinks inspired by pinks' past. Allure said this about the pink hair trend, "Flamingo pink, rose-gold, cotton candy - there are endless ways to wear spring's most Instagram-friendly hair color and endless celebrities who've done it...Now, Paris Jackson is the latest star to partake, but she settled for a look that's on the sunnier end of the spectrum compared to the others: peach hair" We love the healthy glow that this peachy tone seems to give. Paris' look is summertime warm and just peachy!
3 Katy Perry - California Girl, Popsicle Pink
Here she is again! Like we've said, Katy Perry has tried it all when it comes to pink hair and she debuted this most recent pink look on Instagram mid-April, captioning her 'gram, "Fell in love with many different cherry blossoms from Tokyo to South Korea...and I decided I should become one." This cherry blossom pink pixie is a bit different from her cherry chapstick look above, it's definitely a bit edgier than the pin-up girl waves she sported almost a decade ago and the pink is a bit more dimensional than the one color look above too! We love when stars pair their cherry hair with hot pink lipstick and shadows too, we're definitely getting that flower feel here. According to People, Katy's stylist said this about the new pink look, "I used Joico's Pink Color Butter for the whole dye process - it's a very easy color line to use. Being that she was already blonde, the entire process from start to finish took about 30 minutes." 3o minutes to the perfect pink? Sign us up! We're hoping this pink sticks around longer than the cherry blossoms because we love pink Perry, we're confident we'll see her try more pink trends as they arise!
2 Bella Thorne - Shaking It Up With Dark Pink Hair
Bella Thorne is known for changing up her look, and she went pink recently too! Bella is known for being an ex-Disney star, and now is trying out her own look, after an obviously carefully managed image before. Thorne is having fun experimenting with new looks. Thorne debuted her new hair just in time for Coachella and showed off a pink, red, orange striped look. Style Caster reported, "Given that the 19-year-old actress is one of the biggest hair chameleons in Hollywood, having colors like highlighter-yellow, neon pink, and mermaid ombre under her belt, we had high expectations for her latest look. This time, Thorne didn't choose just one color, she chose two, dyeing her hair neon red with sherbet pink highlights." Thorne really has tried it all, and this look seems to suit her. Bella posted a lot of photos from her weekend at Coachella, and her hair definitely made her look like a festival princess, even sporting a tiara in a few snaps. Even in her sweaty, post dancing -the-night-away shots, her hair looks awesome. Her red, pink long hair look reminds us of Ariel from The Little Mermaid, but with a Coachella mermaid festival edge.
1 Kylie Jenner - Keeping Up With Barbie Pink Hair At Coachella 2018
Kylie Jenner is no stranger to colored hair, although we're assuming this is a wig. Kylie posted this Instagram during Coachella. Over the two-weekend-long music festival, the Keeping up with The Kardashians star and Kylie Cosmetics beauty brand entrepreneur tried two different colored hair looks. First this pink wig, with the caption "I'm not a regular mom I'm a cool mom," which is a reference to the Mean Girls mom in the pink velour tracksuit. Then the star switched to a denim blue look for day two.
Kylie appeared earlier on our list with her rose gold locks, but we thought it only fitting to feature her twice as this look closes out the full evolution of pink hair in Hollywood. This is giving us some serious neon Barbie vibes and seemingly pays tribute to hair colors sported by Pink and Gwen Stefani. Pink hair has officially come full circle, from bubblegum to neon, to highlighted pieces, to mauve, to rose gold, to copper, to peach, and finally back to the beginning of the '90s inspired pink dye jobs. We're sure history is destined to repeat itself and we can't wait to see the next star with pink hair!
